FLASHBACK: Obama Says His Cap and Trade Plan Will Skyrocket Your Electric Bill

Around the time the President was elected, Obama had plans to install a cap and trade plan that would, as he admitted, cause your electric bill to skyrocket.

Why would he do this?

Because it was apart of the Apollo Alliance economic plan to transform the U.S. economy into a "Green" economy.

As a matter of fact, in 2009 Senior Adviser to the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works was Kate Gordon, of the Apollo Alliance, stated that the Cap and Trade system was essential to their "New Apollo Program":

"Last fall, we released our New Apollo Program, a proposal for a comprehensive suite of federal investments to build the clean energy economy by leveraging America’s strengths, such as our can-do spirit, our industrial infrastructure, our skilled workforce, and our world-class educational system. This program called for a federal investment of $500 billion over ten years to revolutionize how we produce and use energy – an investment that would create over 5 million new jobs. It also called for a cap and price to be put on carbon pollution. The Apollo Alliance was one of the first organizations to recognize early on that a market-based system to limit carbon emissions is an essential component of any comprehensive strategy to generate growth in the clean energy economy, because it creates new markets for low-carbon products while providing certainty for private investments into the renewable and energy efficiency industries."

Since the EPA has the power to regulate carbon, it is just a matter of time before a cap and trade style system is forced upon us once things like the Smart Grid, which will give the Government the ability to track your individual carbon creation, is complete.

Nice to know that since the Obama administration couldn't pass a cap and trade bill through congress, that they just decided to circumvent the will of the people and use regulation instead.

Funny.... isn't there a word for a leader who does what he wants and doesn't play by the rules?

Hmmm.. I think that word begins with the letter T...

And ends with... YRANT..
